CGE Partners announces new funding of €700m
CGE has raised new capital to continue its thematic investment strategy in backing ambitious businesses in key sectors headquartered across Northern and Western Europe.
London, 4 April 2023
Having largely completed the investment of our first €440 million of capital, CGE Partners are delighted to be investing a further €700 million. We expect to deploy this over the next four to five years, investing €30-100 million of equity into any one business.
Since launching in late 2019 we have completed six platform transactions – Enhesa, Aurora, SureCloud, Ethixbase, Inspera, and Datapharm – plus six bolt-on acquisitions. With this new funding we will continue our strategy of backing companies which benefit from key non-cyclical growth drivers: the need for improved resource efficiency, increasing corporate governance and compliance duties, advancement in life sciences, and the productisation of intelligence. CGE focuses on businesses across the information services, risk & compliance, life science, edtech, and fintech sectors headquartered in Northern and Western Europe.
As a Certified B Corp, our firm aims to drive meaningful positive change in the governance, workers, community, and environmental impact of both ourselves and our portfolio. In 2022 we launched carbon accounting for all portfolio companies, to measure, understand, and manage our investments’ carbon emissions. CGE’s ESG team continues to engage with our portfolio to develop sustainable policies and procedures, manage risks, and improve outcomes. We aim to build on our responsible investment strategy in this next phase of growth.
